African-Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazil

Chapter 4 focuses on how various parties used the festivals as opportunities to formulate and disseminate a public discourse of inclusive “Bahianness” that came to embrace the city's African-Bahian heritage. These groups included Vargas's appointed governors during the Estado Novo (1937-1945), elected politicians from 1945 to 1954, and newspaper journalists and editors. The chapter also describes the important contribution of samba lyrics to this process.
